What would cause 1 to 2 second breaks in almost all transmissions? I have a BCD396XT programmed with both conventional and digital trunked frequencies. Could this be a setting issue with the scanner or is this something inherent with the radio system itself?

One of your priority settings is enabled that will usually cause breaks in transmissions.

I don't have this radio but if it's like the rest you might what to check your priority settings.The receiver pauses to check for activity that is set for priority.

It depends on what constitutes a "break" in your eyes. You may be hearing an extender, or you may be hearing someone who is dropping in and out of coverage, or your receiver may being overpowered. Alternately there could be a problem with your radio system.

What specifically are you hearing/seeing?

Thanks for all of your responses. It was the weather priority set to "ON". I'll also be sure to search the FAQ's on this site before posting. Thanks again.

Annoying, eh? I've had this issue for nearly 3/4 of a year without knowing why or how to prevent it. I thought I had a bad scanner until 1-2 weeks ago :eek:
